Vancouver, BC, July 14, 2015—Copperleaf Technologies CEO Judi Hess has been selected as a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2015 awards in the Pacific region. The Canadian Entrepreneur Of The Year program is in its 22nd year of recognizing, celebrating and telling the inspiring stories of the country’s most impressive entrepreneurs from all areas of business and at different stages of their entrepreneurial journey.
An independent panel of judges selected 31 inspiring entrepreneurs across 10 categories. One of these will be named the overall Pacific winner, who will compete with winners from four other regions – Prairies, Quebec, Ontario and Atlantic – to become Canada’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year. Judi is a finalist in the Turnaround Entrepreneur category, which recognizes individuals for managing a positive reversal of financial or market fortune.
“We’re proud to celebrate such inspiring and forward-thinking entrepreneurs,” says Lui Petrollini, EY’s Pacific Entrepreneur Of The Year program director. “Entrepreneurs are job creators, trailblazers and legacy builders. Each and every single one of them is helping to build a better working world.”
“At Copperleaf, we encourage everyone to have an entrepreneurial spirit—to take calculated risks, be open to new ideas, and quick to adapt,” said Judi Hess. “It’s an honour to be recognized for these qualities, and to be included in this group of people who have inspired others with their vision, leadership and achievement.”
Award finalists are chosen based on their vision, leadership, innovation, financial success, personal integrity, and work in giving back to their communities. The Pacific winners will be announced at a gala on 24 September 2015.
